miniskirt mussolinis

The Fox News Network is unique in more ways than just those having to do with its role as television's chief purveyor of right-wing propaganda. It's also one of the tube's more dependable sites for soft-core semi-porn, since an inordinate number of the Fox commentators are young, glossy bottle blondes sporting short skirts, plunging necklines, and come-hither looks.

Sex in advertising is nothing new, and in our time it's been used to sell everything from applesauce to zip-loc™ bags. But as far as I know the mushrooming number of miniskirt Mussolinis on Fox marks the first time it's been used to sell a fascist ideology. Is it my imagination, or are the skirts getting hiked up higher as the all-important push to unseat the Kenyan Marxist Barack Obama draws closer? If it looks like Mittens is making a solid bid for the Ovular Office, will Megyn Kelly's pants stay on? These are questions upon which the fate of a nation hangs in the balance.

However, that's not very likely, because rising employment figures and a generally improving economy have combined to raise Obama's approval ratings to where the Foxists have suddenly shifted to damage-control mode, with one of the network's primary miniskirt Mussolinis, Gretchen Carlson, suggesting that the improvement in the unemployment numbers tabulated by the Department of Labor are "fabricated."
